Let It Be was originally released as a single on March 6, 1970.
It was written and sung by Paul McCartney, and credited to the Lennon–McCartney partnership.
At the time, it had the highest debut on the Billboard Hot 100, beginning its chart run at number 6 and eventually reaching the top.
Now, finally, on May 10, 2024, fifty-four plus years later, we have the official music video.

Paul wrote "Let It Be", because of a dream he had in 1968. He said that he had dreamt of his mother, and the "Mother Mary" lyric was about her. He later said, "It was great to visit with her again. I felt very blessed to have that dream. So that got me writing 'Let It Be'."

On October 31, 1956, when McCartney was 14, his mother died of an embolism as a complication of surgery for breast cancer. McCartney's loss later became an important connection with John Lennon, whose mother, Julia, was killed on July 15, 1958, when Lennon was 17. Julia Lennon was knocked down and killed by a Standard Vanguard car, driven by an off-duty constable, PC Eric Clague, who was a learner-driver. Clague was acquitted of all charges and given a short suspension from duty. When Mimi Smith (the older sisiter of Julia) heard the verdict she was so incensed that she shouted "Murderer!" at Clague.

Let It Be (the album version - which is this version), was produced by the originator of the Wall of Sound production method, and the greatest Rock 'n' roll producer ever, Phil Spector.
Phillip was also my friend from the time of my interview with him on February 14, 2007, until he passed on January 16, 2021.

So, on this Mother's Day 2024, I dedicate this great song to my Mother, Mary, who passed on March 11, 2010.
She was the most beautiful, giving, and loving Mother a boy, teenager, and man, could ever have wished for.
I love you Mom, and I thank you for all you did, especially instilling in me, honesty, integrity, and love.

Your most grateful son.

And to all Moms, Happy Mother's Day.

Let It Be

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

And when the broken-hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer
Let it be

For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Yeah, there will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow
Let it be

I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be
